In lieu of a new Technical board structure being implemented soon, here are the workings for the new FAQ posts to replace all technical stickies, and hopefully most of your searches.

This is a temporary post because it isn't helping anyone locked away while I'm too busy to finish it.

Please post additional useful links as a new post for a Mod to add to the list.

Mods, I've tried to categorise things logically and keep double-ups to a minimum. PM me any questions.

Cheers,

kamineko

      Hi all,
       
      Vehicle is a 4th gen 2005 legacy sedan pre facelift.
       
      My brake light has stopped working on my rear left upper bulb. I switched out the bulb on the other side to test but no cigar. To me this indicates the wiring must contain the cause BUT the other lights on the same loom are working (lower brake light bulb, reverse bulb and indicator bulb). Has anyone come across this before?
       
      Any advice appreciated, thanks!

      @Andy_Mac - made a new thread, as to not thread jack that Forester thread.
       
      Just checked my car - it does have a hollow shaft, where the lockout cable comes up.
      Also looking at partsouq, my S401 has exactly the same shifter rod to a 2001 GDB V7 Impreza STI (Dad's old STI) - 35011. They used that rod up until the end of 07, when the GD chassis ended.
       
      The Raceseng one says it's for a 04-17 STI (Handle and Base).
      Being USDM, they only got the STI in 2004, which I believe is the V9? So still a GD chassis, and should be the same as what I have (no factory VIN available to confirm this).
       
      So going off partsouq - I should have a Impreza STI shifter etc, and should be sweet with Raceseng's one?
       
      I was gonna ask @mtbtimr if he would make me one up, for a price of course. Would happily pay a premium for one from him, over an internet bought one.

      Right so, it seems my turbo has gone. Just had an oil change like last week, but apparently it's toast. Not been driven hard at all. 2nd one now.
       
      Anyone got a spare VF38 kicking around? 
       
      Waiting in agonised apprehension for a price from mechanic...
